Problem with Cerges Reactor
I built a Cerges Reactor by modifying a phosban reactor and run it on a closed loop in my tank with a Maxijet 1200 at 295gph.
Problem is, by the end of the light cycle some large CO2 bubbles have built up in the reactor. I'm not talking a large single bubble at the top of the reactor, but the bubbles in the reactor are pretty big and don't seem to be getting smashed up by the flow. After the lights go out, it takes a good 2 to 2 1/2 hours for all the CO2 in the reactor to dissolve. This is coupled with the fact that I'm still seeing CO2 deficiency in some of my plants despite really pumping in the CO2.
My question is should I upgrade to a larger pump with more GPH to better smash up the bubbles? Would this make the CO2 bubbles dissolve better or just end up pushing them out of the reactor?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
